PMP: The Future of Project Management

The Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification course is a course that implements the knowledge found in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge. This book, also known as the PMBOK® Guide, is produced by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

The PMP Certification is designed for those who manage cross-functional teams in order to deliver projects within schedule, budget, and scope limitations. The PMP Certification is widely respected because of the rigorous and careful testing involved in the certification process.

At Ashford Global IT (AGIT), we provide our students with the material and skills they will need to pass the PMP Certification examination.

Once certified, a Project Management Professional can enjoy many benefits. Some of the biggest companies in the world require their project managers to be PMPs. Several Fortune 500 companies insist that whoever they hire for project management positions must be certified PMPs. Even government agencies consider it the best qualification for project managers. PMP advocates include the US Defense Systems Management College as well as the US Department of Energy.

In other words, a PMP Certification can set you apart from your competition. The PMP qualification gives certified personnel a competitive edge in the job market and makes all the difference when being hired.

In order to sit for the PMP exam, you should have either a High School Diploma plus 7500 hours of Project Management (PM) related work experience or a Bachelors Degree with 4500 hours of PM related work experience.

You must also have 35 contact hours of project management education. Ashford Global IT can help you fulfill this requirement. Once your training is over, the only thing between you and your PMP Certification is a four-hour exam, which consists of 200 multiple choice questions.

A PMI membership costs $129; the PMP Certification fee for members is $405. If you are not a member, then you will have to pay $555 for the PMP Certification fee. So, if you’re planning to apply for your PMP Certification, it is a wise step to apply for a PMI membership.
